    I worked at Emerge full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I can't say the actual development work wasn't challenging. A constant stream of new projects with interesting challenges is all that kept me at Emerge for as long as I was.

    Cons

    Absolutely no respect for employees. Then-CTO (now CEO) Leo Linder was often insulting and inappropriate in private conversation about other employees. Zero work-life balance (I once worked over 100 hours the week of Christmas, while upper management was on vacation with their families). Constantly selling vaporware and promising clients the impossible without consulting PMs or developers, which leads to constant failure...

    Advice to Management

    Just close shop. I don't imagine there's anyway you'll avoid repeating your boom-and-bust cycle once again. It would require taking a hard look at yourselves and your business practices, something I just don't believe is your MO.

    I worked at Emerge full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I don't think it's possible to list any pros of working with Emerge. I did learn a bit while I was there, but it was from my own research on my own time, not from training, and often was to correct problems with the company's own practices.

    Cons

    No training, no assistance, no teamwork, no communication, management is a complete nightmare, employees constantly competing, no recognition for hard work, no compensation for hard work or overtime, no vacation, worthless benefits, no room for advancement, constant pressure, zero encouragement, zero company culture. Working with Emerge as an employee, partner, or client is guaranteed to stifle your life and ruin your...

    Advice to Management

    Please just close the company. Just stop. You're not adding any value to anything. You are preventing good, hard-working people from succeeding and advancing.

    Thank you for taking the time to articulate your feelings. It sounds like we were not able to give you the environment or support necessary for you to do your best work. It is always our goal to provide as much enabling support as possible. We have a variety of personal and ...
